Electricity will soon take over transportation. Its cleaner, its cheaper, and it is unimaginably more efficient. The vehicle leading the charge right now is the electric bike.
My insurance premiums have increased year on year despite me making no claims and for youngsters just starting out the costs are in many cases totally prohibitive. For example my step son who is nearly 18 years old, he’s at college and desperate to start driving a car. But when we started to research the cost of insurance just on my own policy the quotes were completely off the scale. In fact some insurance companies won’t even quote now for young men under 18 years old.
Don’t kid yourself by sitting in the ‘www.bicicleta-eletrica.net/bicicletas/mini-bikes-eletricas/ crowd’ and think that by doing so, you are doing your ecological, environmental and ideological best for society. The planet will still warm! Despite what most people believe, a high percentage of the world’s electricity is produced using ‘dirty fuels’ like oil and coal. And this is NOT going to change anytime soon. In fact, the more electric vehicles that are produced, the more the world will rely on ‘dirty fuels’ to keep up with increasing demand for electricity. And another interesting fact for you to ponder is this. Even with silly government subsidies, electric vehicles are all priced higher than their petrol or diesel equivalents.
There is another advantage. Since you’re pedaling, you’re exercising. Makes you healthy. Of course, not everyone is in superb physical shape to be pedaling from one side of the city to the other.

ONever forget the immutable law of the universe! “There’s no such thing as a free lunch” Translated, it means you get what you pay for. A good kit with a battery is going to cost $600 or more. When you pay less you begin to sacrifice quality, lifespan, and service.
The only downside to the Razor Pocket Rocket is the battery life. If you plan on riding around as long as you can 40 minutes doesn’t seem like much at all. It really depends on the user, because lighter individuals won’t need as much power to get it moving. Either way, the Razor still states that it offers 40 minutes of ride time and it takes 12 hours to recharge.
In other parts of the world, however, they haven’t been so lucky. Europeans have been experiencing gas prices between $5-$8 per gallon for years. But they still get around. Common among their usual transport is a bicycle. You’ve seen many pictures of common folks getting around town bicycling. Kinda like what we did when we were kids. To get more “mileage”, a lot of Asians and Europeans use hybrid electric motor bikes.
